Precision Textiles has signed a lease for a new 160,000-square-foot, 25-acre campus in Troy, North Carolina. The new plant is expected to be operational by Sept. 1, 2021, and will employ 100 people from the local area.
The facility, once a textiles production plant that serviced the automobile industry, is Precision Textiles’ first domestic manufacturing facility outside of its New Jersey headquarters. It will double the manufacturer’s needle-punch nonwovens production and boost its high-loft quilting fiber output by 50 percent. In addition to its production capacity, the facility includes warehousing space. The workforce at the facility will include new employees as well as experienced staff from the textiles company that previously operated the plant.
Founded in 1987, Precision Textiles is a global supplier of coated fabrics, nonwovens and laminates for companies in the mattress, home furnishings, automotive and healthcare industries, as well as military apparel.
